plaster board coming off as i remove boarder tiles

Postby stevo72 » Sat Oct 06, 2007 11:08 am

i have just started taking off boarder tiles in bathroom as i wish to replace them with another boarder, but the first couple of tiles have also taken off the plaster board behind it, is there a simple solution to this ?

i am drilling the tiles first weaken and then using chisel to remove , i really dont want to end up taking all the wall tiles off to have to re plaster board the bathroom that would be a nightmere !

Hi stevo72,
This is a sod of a job, it happens all the time on Dry-lined walls. Only help I can offer is to use a hammer and wide chisel, and chisel with care.
Best of Luck
